Stage 5 - 3 min.
Pancake batter
...until the batter is evenly mixed.

Stage 6
Pancake batter
Your pancake batter is ready for use.
If you do not have a blender, you can use a whisk.

You will find plenty of recipes that tell you to leave the batter to rest, but having tried both ways (resting / not resting), I have not found that it makes any difference.

A variation worth trying: replace half the flour with chestnut flour.
A few days in the fridge covered with plastic film.
After Gaston Lenôtre.
